My Shopping Trip

I’ve finally made it and went out shopping. You see, I haven’t been able to go for a while because I had surgery so I’ve been housebound until I was well enough to get out. I still wasn’t able to drive so I enlisted my mother to take me to Eau Claire as I had a Doctor appointment and then wanted to stop and get a few groceries. Even being housebound I wasn’t really keeping up with my couponing. I think I slept more than I did anything else. But once I started feeling a little better I thought that I better try to get caught up. All my coupons inserts have been put into their respective date, pulled the month end coupons, and discarded the old ones.  So that’s finally done. Now to get back in the swing of things and start showing more of those deals that I’ve found.

I made two store trips. One to Festival Food and the other Gordy’s. I found some decent sales. So here is a little breakdown of what kind of deals that I got.

So in the long run it wasn’t a bad day. I must say that maybe I don’t shop like those “Extreme Shoppers” but I am very happy when I save that kind of money. 1/2 off your grocery bill isn’t bad. A lot of things I’ve bought ahead for the upcoming Memorial Day and Graduation parties. So I have it now instead of paying full price when it isn’t on sale. It sure puts a savings in my pocket. Have a great weekend.
